Personal Statement

Personal Statement

Nursing Informatics, Leadership and Mentoring are pillars of my scholarship. The three complement each other. A proactive and transformational leader is able to appreciate and integrate nursing informatics concepts and applications to enhance one’s leadership skills. These include knowledge and proficiency in the use of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in financial planning and budgeting, strategic planning, quality management, research and evidence-based practice, data mining, data analytics, project management, systems analysis and design, and the use of technology of various formats to enhance quality of care and patient safety. A visionary leader realizes the importance of mentoring to educate and develop promising nurses to transform them into dynamic nursing leaders of the future. Similarly, nursng informatics can enhance the capabilities and mindset of strong leaders and rising stars to achieve their full potential with the use of technology and its adjunctive modalities. One aspect of nursing informatics is nursing information behavior which focuses on how nurse leaders and other nurses' roles impact nursing and our work as nurses. The effective identification of appropriate nursing information needs, relevant sources to access information, what processes and information models are used, as well as what barriers are frequently encountered are important facets of this phenomenon. For nurses in various roles and settings including those who are leaders and mentees, the ability to successfully navigate patient care scenarios that require information generation, clarification, and patient health education are important and strategic approaches in transforming nursing. As a leader, mentor, nurse informaticist, administrator, and educator, I am particularly interested in the intertwining relationship of leadership, mentoring and informatics and its relevant role in improving nursing, nursing education, and the overall quality of patient care and safety.
